Wood Finishing Oils, Creams, Glazes, and Pastes

Whether you’re looking for the perfect protective finish to your latest painting project, are trying to preserve the integrity of an older work, or want to add a special touch to a treasured piece of furniture, Real Milk Paint wood finishes are an excellent choice. Depending on the type of finish you’re looking for, you can choose from our:

  • Pure Tung oil or Dark Tung oil
  • Natural citrus solvent or half-and-half citrus solvent and Tung oil
  • Hemp oil
  • Chippy paste
  • Finishing creams and glazes

Pure Tung Oil

Pure Tung oil has been trusted for thousands of years as a waterproofing agent and wood finish, and when it dries it forms a protective layer over top of the surface to which it’s been applied. Tung oil can be used over paint or as a wood finishing oil, making it great for projects like furniture, decks, cabinetry, floors, doors, bowls (Tung oil is FDA approved as food safe), counters, and cutting boards, and can even be used on brick and concrete.

Dark Tung Oil

Real Milk Paint’s dark Tung oil is similar to our regular Tung oil, except that it has a natural and non-toxic resin added to the mix that brings depth to a wood grain. It also creates a dark, matte finish that results in a classic aged and antique look. Dark Tung oil has all the same great features as our regular Tung oil, so it’s ideal for all the same types of projects.

Hemp Oil

If you’re looking for natural wood oils and VOC-free finishes, hemp oil is a fantastic choice. It requires no thinning, has a pleasant nutty aroma, and has a color that varies from a light green to a golden yellow. Like Tung oil, hemp oil dries to a matte finish, and can be used on bare wood or as a finish on top of the paint.

Natural Citrus Solvent

Our natural citrus solvent is an environmentally friendly product that can be used as a paint thinner alternative, in place of mineral spirits, and as a degreaser. Our solvent is made from pure orange peel extract and water and doesn’t contain the additives or surfactants found in traditional paint thinners.

Half Tung Oil and Half Citrus Solvent

Before being applied, Tung oil has to be thinned out to ensure the best coverage and penetration. But getting the ratio right can be difficult, which is why we started bottling the perfect Tung oil and natural citrus solvent mixture for you. This blend is ideal for:

Coating, sealing and protecting wood from wear and water
Bringing out wood’s natural grain
Deepening the natural color of wood

Finishing Creams & Glazes

All our finishing creams and glazes are odorless, water-based, and VOC-free. These protective burnishing pastes and glazes are easy to apply and come in a variety of colors. There are also low-sheen and dead flat options, depending on how much luster and shine you want.

Chippy Paste

If you’re looking for a rustic and creative look for a wood finish, why not try a chipped effect, which you can create easily with our chippy paste. The paste allows you to control where chipping occurs and makes for a unique and interesting finish for your projects.

The Real Milk Paint Company has many wood finishing products available to protect your furniture and wood products, and all our milk paint and finishes are guaranteed to be the highest quality and environmentally friendly.
